Castle Point Fort
Castle Point Fort
A promontory fort on a steep-sided clifftop just west of Pennan harbour. The site was first enclosed by a pallisade in the late prehistoric period. The pallisade was then replced by a wall made of stone and timber combined, with a complex gateway entrance.
Later still, a secoond stone wall was erected inside the first. This second wall was later vitrified (fused by fire). Excavations on the site have revealed huts used by metalworkers.

The site was in use during the Dark Ages, and there are partial remains of a medieval stone castle.

There is another promontory fort at Cleaved Head, about 8 miles away, and burial cairns at Memsie and Longman Hill, about 8 miles away.
